Crystalline Flask, and why it's viable

Hi guys, let's do some theory crafting with your friendly neighborhood Teeird!

At the moment, there's a controversy on the new item "Crystalline Flask", whether it's good or not on your top laners. I'm here to clear the case.

Let's start with the costs;

  • Health Potion gives 150 HP over 15 seconds (10 HP every second)
  • Mana Potion gives 100 MP over 15 seconds (6.666 MP every second)
With every use, the flask gives you;
  • 100 HP over 10 seconds (10 HP every second)
  • 40 MP over 10 seconds (4 MP every second)
Obviously, the flask gives you less health and mana, but compensates by a less duration time and giving you both HP/MP at the same time, so think of it as a reusable rejuvenation potion from Diablo.

So, the stats each drink provides is;
  • 23 gold from HP regen stats (66.6% of 35 which is a normal potion)
  • 14 gold from MP regen stats (40% of 35 which is a normal potion)
So each gulp is worth 37 gold, so that would mean 6 gulps would equal out to the price you paid for it (222g vs 225g, meh). So considering a standard top laner would buy 6-7 potions throughout the game (3-5 from start) in the first place, this is a must buy! (Maybe not for manaless champions)

After you made your money back, you're getting free stats! 300 HP and 120 MP on top of your total stats, that's insane!

But wait... The item's uses will probably cap out around mid game where everyone starts meeting quadra digits in stats, so now would be a great time to sell it, so on top of the free money you made off stats, you get an extra 90g back!

Math, best stat IRL.

Psst, I've got a secret to tell you. Stop telling people about the good stuff. They'll drag you down to their level of stupidity and with through experience.

There's a youtube channel where a guy posts "lol math". Look it up, I believe he did something of the sort himself.

That would be Milon. I'm a different person. Mylon as in, "My Lon, not your Lon." Or "You must construct additional Mylons."

Oh, ok. I just thought your name was a reference to that GOD awful N.E.S game.

Nobody is saying it's a bad item.

You buy it if you know you're going to use a lot of potions.

Hi, cool, a blue.

I haven't really seen the item, but I will give it a look in the up-coming days.
